Scamp in Comox, B.C.

Saw a 13 ft. Scamp coming off the Comox-Powell River Ferry today. We mostly see Bolers and Trilliums around here in Vancouver Island, so it was a surprise.
No jalousie windows, but they had those rain guards on the ends of the side windows so you can have them open a bit even when it rains. I was ready to stop and see if they wanted to sell those to me as they are no longer manufactured. First pair I've ever seen on a F.G. trailer around here. Didn't catch the license plate as I was too busy looking at the trailer!

I looked all over for them a couple of years ago only to discover they were no longer being manufactured. Several reviewers mention this in the Amazon reviews:

Maybe I should put out a Wanted Ad!

As we were leaving Denver yesterday on I-70W on our way to RMNP a green and white Boler passed us. It was pulled by a Volvo with two young women in the front seats. Mike

I saw 7 Olivers in one place yesterday (a herd of Olivers?). They were outside the Oliver sales office as I drove through Hohenwald Tn. Business must be really great, as normally I only see one or two when I drive by. Good for Oliver.

It is reasonably easy to create a removable louvered vent for rainy days for a sliding window. Just cut a plate to fit into the window frame out of Polycabornate, ie. Lexan, which is easy to saw, route and drill, and then cut out the center area to insert a louvered bilge vent in a vertical orientation. You could send a pattern to a company such as Tap Plastics and have them laser cut it from regular acrylic. (Polycarbonate plastic is not good for laser cutting as it gives off toxic fumes but it is friendlier for manual cutting than regular acrylic which tends to crack.) But you can also laser cut a pattern from wood or mdf to use on the plastic plate for trimming it to size using a router with a pattern following, bearing bit.

Here is a link for the louvers which are what make this project a relatively easy one to DIY. Look for them on Ebay for better pricing.

We have our Silver Cloud at the Cliff Side campground in Racine, WI this weekend. Who owns the 13' Scamp near us?

Six in one day

Had a banner day on our last trip.

Traveling up the interstate from Casper to Billings on Aug. 29, passed a Trillium pulled over in a roadside parking area. Then saw a Casita, a Scamp, an Escape and a Burro southbound. When we pulled into the RV park in Billings, a different Casita pulled in right behind us.

We've never seen that many eggs in one day.

(Sorry this is a delayed report, did not have good internet access for a month).
